Mc Arsat/ Arax 35mm Tilt Shift..any good?

Since it now seems that Samyang may or may not be releasing their new 24mm tilt shift lens in Pentax mount, I have been looking at this Arax or MC Arsat option. I can find very little on this 35mm ts lens and would love to hear from people who have used it. My intentions for using a tilt shift lens are for more experimental purposes in being able to isolate selective parts of the frame in a shot rather than any thing else.

Any thoughts on it are much appreciated.

This may be more easily and cheaply approached using a software solution. A couple of years back I played with an Adobe Air app called "TiltShift Generator". You can see a few of the results here:

The homepage for the app is here:

...or...you can learn to do the selective de-focus (introduction of Gaussian blur) in your favorite image editor.
